Napolitano Promises to Release More Illegals

Neil Munro, Daily Caller, March 4, 2013

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano promised to release more illegal immigrants into the United States, saying the budget sequester has left her no choice.

Several hundred detainees have already released because of the sequester, she insisted. They were released on bail, or because their legal status had changed, she said.

“We’re going to continue to do that … for the foreseeable future,” Napolitano said at a March 4 breakfast meeting hosted by Politico. “We are going to manage our way through this by identifying the lowest risk detainees, and putting them into some kind of alternative to release.”

However, Napolitano’s statement clashed with a March 1 report by The Associated Press, which said that internal agency documents show that her managers had already released 2,000 detainees, and planned to release 3,000 more detainees.

Napolitano’s threat reflects the White House’s determination to ramp up public distress until the GOP agrees to another tax increase.


Napolitano’s threat to release more illegals was not criticized by Tom Ridge, a former secretary of Homeland Security under George W. Bush, who was also interviewed at the Politico breakfast.

Instead, Ridge complained that the controversy over the illegals’ release threatened passage of the draft immigration rewrite.

Progress towards a legislative success “gets sidelined—well, did you release 2,000? Didn’t you release 2,000? What about this, what about that?” Ridge complained.

    Incompetano should be forced to let all the illegal aliens she releases live in her basement.

    What’s even more amazing, is they’re NOT releasing and deporting them – which any sane country would do. They’re simply releasing them back out into the midst of the U.S. population to do as much damage as possible.

    Maybe some people in the Regime need to get Hugo Chavez’s disease…

      Her life-partner might not like that.

        “Life partner”


        Maybe her “life partner” and she can get a foursome going with Barney ‘The Dinosaur’ Frank and his “life partner” for a “hot time in the old town tonight.”

        *Double Gag*

  • HadEnough

    Note that RINO Tom Ridge 1) equates amnesty and “legislative success” and 2) considers that the problem with Napolitano’s outrageous action is simply that it “threaten[s] passage of the draft immigration rewrite.” Good-bye, America. It was nice knowing you.

    Bullsquat!. This release had to have been planned a month ago, well before the sequester took place.

    Opening the prison doors and releasing these criminal squatties is an impeachable offense.


      What the police don’t kill the white people in the suburbs are armed and ready to kill the rest. Come and get it.

      • MikeS

        I agree. Release all of them; we could use the practice.

      • MikeS

        I agree. Let all of them out. I don’t know about the rest of you, but I sure could use the practice.

    • pointy end out

      Is this not “aid and comfort to the enemy” as well as open sedition ?

      wouldnt it be delicious if various high profile liberals were “mortally wounded” by these scum?

      • MikeS

        I hope so. The anticipation is killing me.

    I used to like Ridge, but he’s gone over to the dark side. Last week he supported sodomite marriage.

    • Joseph

      Ridge was bad from before day one. He is an unrepentant neocon cheerleader for the police state, internet spying and control and “climate change” evangelist.

  • I don’t actually blame Janet, I blame the likes of McCain, Romney and any surname Bush for not having the courage to ACTIVELY do something about it. I’m tired of them saying they will do something, but nothing really gets done.

    • Jefferson

      Of course you never blame libtards for any of this because you are a committed hardcore partisan Democrat who puts The Democratic Party above the country.

      • Wayne

        I never blame democrats because a tiger can’t change its stripes. I blame the lowlife Republitard traitors for not screaming obout this constantly, and tightening even more the pursestrings. This is treason against mom and pop american.

    “The idea is to “ramp up public distress” until GOP agrees to tax hikes.”

    That’s got it right on.

    And these kinds of tactics are what are perpetrated by the most unscrupulous types within the political community. And the tactic is childish enough to correctly be attributed to a black and/or black-controlled administration.

    Like South Africa, we have a black run country that is being managed like a banana republic.

    • MekongDelta69

      Well… you know how much ‘blacks’ love bananas!

      The world has become an extremely litigious place. As whites, what we must do is form a large coalition, pool our resources, screen and retain several teams of prominent attorneys, and begin filing multiple class action lawsuits against the government.
      In the initial phase of such an effort, we would form a committee to vet potential attorneys.
      The idea would be to engage in multiple class action lawsuits, rather than wrapping all grievences of wrongs into one. I
      Such lawsuits would focus on damages related to numerous themes.
      For example, in completely separate lawsuits, we would sue for damages based on:
      1. The measurable risk posed to our families from the presence of illegal aliens
      2. The measurable tax burden we face due to the presence of illegal aliens
      3. Measureable harm to our standard of living due to the presence of illegal aliens
      4. Measurable harm from the government selectively enforcing laws to the detriment of Whites
      5. Measurable harm from affirmative action
      6. Measurable harm from the application of civil rights laws
      7. Measurable harm from voter fraud
      8. Measurable harm from voter intimidation
      9. Measurable harm due to extortion from the IRS
      10. Measurable harm due to mass slavery imposed by the federal government against citizens (e.g., forced at gunpoint to pay taxes in order to meet the basic necessities of life, such as food, shelter, and clothing for our families)
      We are only limited by our collective will and imagination. Imagine each of these 10 planks, and may more, going forward as independent class action lawsuits in federal court, and ultimately, the SCOTUS. We can do this if we organize and take the initiative instead of bemoaning our fate day after day here in cyberspace.
      Think about it. The leftists have made substantial gains over the decades because they make noise and litigate. While it is not in our nature as conservatives to do this, we must adapt to the present conditions or face extinction. One of the ways of adapting is to litigate and attempt to recover some of the money stolen from us; money that helps to fuel the advancement of our enemies.
      Think about it! We are financing our own takedown and dispossession! Likewise, we are financing a bleak future for our White families and better future for those who want to kill our families. This MUST end.
      Ask yourself one question: How much better would your life and the lives of your family be if your taxes weren’t given to illegals and foreigners? There are literally thousands of direct and ancillary consequences of this, and we should all commit to exploring those together.

  • Felix_M

    Oh, the irony. If our “leaders” hadn’t pi$$ed away so much money on benefits for illegal aliens, they’d now have enough funds to afford to hold them.

    (Who in the f*** needs comedy when we have the clowns in Washington putting on a first-rate farce?)

  • bigone4u

    Most of them are macho Mexican males. If you’re gonna release em, make em wear Sheriff Joe pink jumpsuits, so we the law abiding citizens of this once great country know who they are. They’ll hightail it back to Mexico andale to shuck off those pink outfits. Sheriff Joe knows how to deal with law breakers. Let’s learn from him.

  • IKantunderstand

    Frankly, the amount of illegal aliens released into this country by Janet, pales in comparison to the amounts that Mexico, Central and South America release daily into our country. Screw the ME, let’s make war on Central and South America. When they lose, at least, I think they will lose, no telling nowadays with the cuts to our military. We impose our way of doing things. Wait, I’m not sure what our way of doing things is anymore. I’m confused. I’m sure everything will be straightened out perfectly in 2050 when Whites are no longer a majority. Not just in the United States, but in Canada, in Australia, in New Zealand, in England, in France , in Germany, in Sweden, in Norway, in Denmark, in Holland, in Belgium, in Austria, in Switzerland, in Ireland, in Scotland, in Wales, in Greece, in Spain, in Portugal, in Italy. Yeah, I’m pretty sure the way of doing things will have been taken care of by then. Notre Dame will have been converted into a Mosque. Also the fate of St. Patricks Cathedral in NYC, and all the others in the world. I shudder to think about what happens to the Sistine Chapel, when the brown and black hordes take over. Museums? Opera? Ballet? Hell, electricity? Cripes, FOOD!? Yup, White people, just keep on letting these savage barbarians in.

  • Jefferson

    I am surprised that a supposed “conservative” red state like Arizona elected a butch dyke Democrat like Janet Napolitano as governor in the past.

    • refocus

      TPTB will only allow demonstrable nut jobs for high profile office. A real, honest man cannot get on the ballot.

  • Bon, From the Land of Babble

    Pony up more money to obama or Napolitano will set criminals on us? At least the treason and extortion are out in the open for us to see and guns are still legal.

    You know what Napolitano? Set ‘em loose. All of them. Do it now. They’ll be turned loose anyway when McCain, Rubio, Graham and Jeb Bush pass an amnesty.

    Never mind. Looks like you already ARE turning ALL of them loose:

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The Homeland Security Department released from its jails more than 2,000 illegal immigrants facing deportation in recent weeks due to looming budget cuts and planned to release 3,000 more during March, The Associated Press has learned.

    The newly disclosed figures, cited in internal budget documents reviewed by the AP, are significantly higher than the “few hundred” illegal immigrants the Obama administration acknowledged this week had been released under the budget-savings process.

    The government documents show that Immigrations and Customs Enforcement released roughly 1,000 illegal immigrants from its jails around the U.S. each week since at least Feb. 15.

    The states where immigrants were released include Arizona, California, Georgia and Texas.

    The country is now being run by Chicago mobster tactics. “Pay me my protection money or suffer the consequences.”

  • IstvanIN

    Why aren’t the Republicans prosecuting Obama, Biden and Nepolitano? Oh, wait, they’re traitors, too!

  • SargeInCharge

    Threatening to unleash illiegal immigrants to get your way on another political matter? These are the games that Leftists play. This is America’s future as the demographics Leftists introduced to America grow and weigh in their favor. Unless, of course, action is taken.

  • Greg Thomas

    DHS was releasin illegal invaders long before any so-called budget cuts took place. Napolitano has been one of the biggest cheerleaders for amnesty in this administration. This
    is why obummer appointed her, so she could loosely enforce immigration law and turn
    illegal invaders loose. This traitor belongs nowhere near any agency charged
    with enforcing immigration law.

  • Yan

    While I can’t stand the Republican party, the level of treason and cheating displayed by the high-ranking Democrats is truly astounding.

    I’m glad Hell is real.

    • saxonsun

      Unfortunately, it isn’t.

  • Diamond_Lil

    This kind of nonsense just furthers my conviction that both parties play games with each other, and ultimately and strategically against/screw the interests of the middle-class white taxpayers. (Pardon my language. My inner-thesaurus is depleted after another rough Latino-filled day in SoCal.) I mean, why would the Latino-panderer-in-Chief play the Latino boogey-man card here?

  • Snowhitey

    When is someone going to throw a coconut cream pie in Mr. Napolitano’s face. No, that was not a typo and I am not referring to the judge.

  • napolitano, what a joke the USA has become, and you are one of the clowns we must now contend with.

  • mobilebay

    Blackmail, pure and simple. This reminds me of the spot the Republicans find themselves in. They are being held hostage until they surrender (some didn’t need a push) and vote for amnesty so they can keep the good will of Hispanics who won’t be happy until they have created a third world here to wallow in.

    • ms_anthro

      Don’t kid yourself. The GOP wants illegals here, they want amnesty, they want open borders. They are our enemies.

  • curri

    There are only things the current GOP takes seriously: (1) opposition to tax hikes (2) slavish devotion to Israel.

  • toldev

    It is best to call the liberal’s bluff on this issue by simply not caring about it. This country has been invaded by more than 11,000,000 illegals. Do the liberals really think that releasing 2,000 is going to make that much difference in the scheme of things? Besides that, this has the potential to backfire spectacularly on the liberals. If one of these should have been deported illegals gets up to some illegal activity, the right has a new Willie Horton to use against the left. That could make any talk of amnesty politically untenable for quite a while.

  • ms_anthro

    This is open treason against the United States of America.

  • Whirlwinder

    These ‘artful dogers’ do not really care about the safety and welfare of the American people. To release double criminals onto the streets of America should be a criminal offence and punishable. These illegal aliens are double criminals in that they committed a crime by their wetback entry into the country and then committed crimes while here. How do we get rid of these so called ‘leaders’?

  • butcher shop

    When will Obama’s own paycheck be cut along with his vacation trips for he and his wife?
    Didn’t Romney say he would do the job for free?

  • HamletsGhost

    DHS has money to buy millions of rounds of ammunition and thousands of Armored Personnel Carriers, but can’t keep the puny number of criminals it does have off the streets?

    • Before we fly off the handle, and presume that we’re automatically scheduled for concentration camps just because Federal agencies are engaging in a lot of weird ammunition purchases, (and yes, they are weird), let’s consider some alternate and less pernicious theories first.

      Here are three I and people I have been brainstorming with have come up with:

      1. Obama “can’t wait.” This is why he does a lot of things by executive order and action, such as the DREAM Act (“DACA”), because the little wannabe dictator has ants in his pants and just can’t wait for Congress to sign on to his wreck America agenda, he wants it all and he wants it now. Since he “can’t wait” for Congress (namely, the House, namely, the non-establishment Republicans in the House), to pass “gun control,” he’s ordering executive agencies to spam the market for ammo buys just to drive the cost up, just to make it unaffordable for the rest of us here in the domestic market.

      2. Profit seeking. Buy massive when it’s relatively cheap, sell it back when it gets really expensive. A way for the Feds to make some money in the near future.

      3. Alternate inter-agency currency. Just as cigarettes are a de facto currency among prisoners, ammunition is, as I understand, can be a good medium exchange among various Federal agencies and bureaucracies, especially since the “real” money is being quantitatively eased into late night comedy joke-worthy worthlessness. Maybe the Feds are stocking up knowing that they’ll need this alternate form of “money” in the near future to keep their own wheels turning.

      • HamletsGhost

        Gov’t agengies routinely buy stuff they don’t need since to have any money left over at the end of the fiscal year doesn’t look good when they beg for more money from Congress. This could explain the ammo purchases.

        Napalitano is releasing these people because the sequester gives them an excuse to do what they always wanted to do anyway.

        • We’ll call that non-pernicious theory #4. It’s a good theory, too, especially because of baseline budgeting.

  • tomasso

    I know this is a longshot but if there is any justice in this world Obongo’s daughters will get kidnapped by these newly released animals so he can see firsthand what its like when the zoo gates open and the animals roam free
